ECE custom designed and constructed two Living Cherry Blossom Tree costumes for the 100th Anniversary of the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC. The Trees along with our Butterfly Performers greeted guests as they waited to enter Convention Center for the Opening Ceremony.The Trees were so well received they were featured on the front page of Washington Post metro section the following day.

Additionally ECE produced an amazing collaboration on the main stage presenting the thrilling sword fights of Samurai Sword Soul in unison with the Taiko Drumming Project. The performance drew rave reviews.
